Ukrainian Refugees Doctors
Our OET project is now closed. We would like to thank our partners and tutors for their valuable contribution to its successful completion.
Ukrainian refugee doctors who pass OET can already be included in the Medical Support Workers programme (other programmes currently being established) and can start helping the NHS
Doctors with B2 English are ready to start OET preparation
How we help
For doctors with English levels B2 and above:
intensive OET preparation course in mini-group with certified tutor (14 lessons over 1 or 2 months)
For doctors with English levels B1 and below:
intensive ELS tuition in groups (4 months per level) + further OET preparation course
What we have achieved so far
Two groups have already completed the OET preparation course
(10 people in total)
Monthly meetings with Medical Support Workers programme administration
New groups (OET and B1-to-B2) will be launched subject to funding availability
Doctors who have passed OET will be supported in booking OET exams (refugees are eligible for 2 free attempts) and further preparation for PLAB 1 and PLAB 2 for GMC registration
The course is not only shed light on understanding the OET exam but also provided a valuable practice of each subtest. I’m enormously grateful to each person who originated this course.
Everyone who once has started preparation for the OET would agree with me that the most difficult part is to find a good teacher and reliable sources for practice. This course gives all of this and I place a hope that the project will continue and help Refugee doctors who have the possibility to join and prepare.
